Mads Sætter-Lassen is a budding industrial designer who recently won Northern Lighting’s Student Design Award for his desk lamp affectionately dubbed Buddy. A dual-purpose design, it not only sheds light on those important work sessions, it also holds any floating stationary and other knickknacks thanks to its built-in holder at the base.
Overall a very simple design, Mads Sætter-Lassen's Buddy Lamp is nevertheless full of personality. The prize ensures that others will be able to enjoy this office staple. It "will be launched later this month at the upcoming Maison & Objet Show in Paris, and then at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair," writes Contemporist. Mads Sætter-Lassen describes it as "the little helper everyone needs." This is true considering how quickly desks can become disorganized.
